Sweet Greetings

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a wonderful day here at the Marsh household. Our youngest grandson came to spend the night and the entire day with us.
We went to his ballgame last night. They played a team on our side of town. We sat in quite a downpour watching the game. But our big umbrellas kept us covered and dry.
My hubby took Ethan to the driving range today to hit golf balls,  and he loved it. He couldn't wait to tell me how far he hit the ball. They are trying to set up a golf outing some time this summer.
Ethan will be allowed to drive the cart, and he was really excited about that. We took him back home this evening around 8:00. Stopped to get an ice cream cone on the way. A sweet treat that ended a really sweet day for us all.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #537 on Splitcoaststampers. I am the hostess and I chose some of the new Stampin'-Up in-colors for my color trio with cucumber crush, watermelon wonder and hello honey. Our option this week is to make a card showing your favorite summertime sweet treat.
watermelon wonder, cucumber crush, hello honey

 I knew I was making an ice cream card and also I knew I was using the Stampin'-Up designer paper from the "cherry on top" collection. Found my layout with the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #275 so I just had to put it all together.

 My ice cream bars are die cut in the challenge colors with the MFT "sweet treats" die. On the whisper white panel they are mounted on , I used the gorgeous grunge set and stamped in watermelon wonder.

My flag banner is stamped with a sentiment from the MFT "spooky wishes" set. I added the die cut hello from the "happy hellos' die from MFT. Cut first in cucumber crush then I layered hello honey over that.

And, that blogger friends is my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights i  Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
